Maptitude for Redistricting includes everything you need to build and analyze reapportionment plans. Maptitude reapportionment and redistricting software is designed for governments or organizations that want to provide their members or the general public with a means to draw and report reapportionment plans. Maptitude redistricting and reapportionment software is used by a super-majority of the state legislatures, both national political parties, many state political parties, county and regional governments, city and local governments, elected officials, educational institutions, and public interest groups (List of reapportionment clients).
“ Cheaper software is letting independent consultants in the game, too. George Meier, former staff director of Florida's House reapportionment committee, had to requisition $600,000 in computer software and equipment in 1991 to draft new electoral district boundaries. This year, as a redistricting expert freelancing for cities and counties in Florida [using Maptitude for Redistricting], his overhead is considerably lower: He got everything he needs loaded onto his Dell laptop for under $4,000. And Baltimore civil-rights attorney Samuel L. Walters is using [Maptitude for Redistricting] to pitch his expertise to minority groups and local governments. Mr. Walters, who worked for the NAACP during 1991's redistricting, says he expects to quickly recoup his costs.”
